options. many options you won't say so much to use your own money. thanks for joining the conversation here on "your $$$$$." you can find me on facebook @christineromanscnn. have a great weekend. a look at our top stories this hour. in northern california a fun night out has taken a tragic turn. last night a fire ripped through a limousine carrying nine women. details straight ahead. a 17-year-old soccer player allegedly lashes out at a referee punching him in the head and one week later the referee dies. we dig into what the consequences might be. fbi agents are once again conducting a search of the
1:01 pm
apartment where a boston bombing suspect tamerlan tsarnaev lived with his wife and child in cambridge, massachusetts. susan candiotti is live for us in boston where all of this is playing out. susan, what have you learned about this new search? >> reporter: hi, fred. the latest news is that the search has now ended for the day. the fbi telling us that they executed a search warrant, were executing a search warrant, at tamerlan tsarnaev's apartment as you indicated where he lived with his wife and his child. sources have previously told us that bomb residue was found there. the search was conducted because of the fbi's interview with the younger brother dzhokhar who told investigators that in fact the bombs were built there and they originally had planned to carry out an attack on the fourth of july. we don't know what, if anything, they took away from the home today. the fbi is not commenting on any of that. also today, fred, i can tell you
1:02 pm
that cnn has done an in-depth interview with exclusive details in an interview with the father of one of the exchange students, one of two, who is accused of hiding evidence from the bomb case. evidence that belonged to the suspect dzhokhar. now, these two young men say they didn't try to do anything or hide anything on purpose but the father who interviewed his son in jail told us that in talking with the son about what happened, he said that his son denied that he had any role at all in the bombing and that he was simply afraid for his friend, dzhokhar, when they removed a laptop and backpacks from his dorm room and didn't let the fbi know about it until the fbi came to locate them. this is how his father explained it about when he spoke with his son. >> translator: i asked my son did you want to help dzhokhar?
1:03 pm
he said, dad, if we wanted to help him, we would have thrown the laptop out too. but we didn't want to throw anything out. it's just that kadyrbayev got scared and threw the bag out. he took the laptop out and put it on the table. so they didn't want to help him. he said if we wanted to help him, we would have thrown out the laptop too and we would bury the bag in the ground somewhere. >> reporter: now mr. tazhayakov tells us that if his son did anything wrong, he said it was unintentional. he's very sorry about what happened at the boston marathon bombing. also today, fred, finally we can tell you an update about trying to find a place to bury tamerlan tsarnaev's body. hiss uncle who is now in worcester, massachusetts, at a funeral home is telling us he performed a ritual cleansing of
1:04 pm
the body to prepare tamerlan's body for burial as per tradition in the islamic faith. however, no cemetery has yet been found. here's what he said. >> i'm left alone to deal with this matter. i also stress that tamerlan tsarnaev has no other place to be buried. >> reporter: every other cemetery he says that's been contacted, every secemetery, rejected him saying they want nothing to do with the burial of this young man. >> all right. susan candiotti, thanks so much, in boston. this is an image from the attack. both legs gone. last night bauman made a surprise appearance at a boston bruins home game serving as the team's honorary banner captain
1:05 pm
as you see right there and the crowd simply went crazy. >> he was hailed a hero for his resilient spirit and help in identifying one of the suspects. onto california now, a fun night out with friends turned into a nightmare for a group of women. a fire broke out in their stretch limo and many of them couldn't get out. nick, tell us more about this tragic accident and how they think this fire started. >> local media outlets and agencies are reporting that this group was part of a bachelorette party and among the dead was the bride to be. cnn cannot independently confirm these reports from local news agencies. we called the chp and they said they read the same reports but can't confirm them. earlier when i spoke to chp, they said they believe the fire started outside of the passenger
1:06 pm
area of the limousine perhaps in the trunk or maybe even underneath the limo. you are looking at photos taken last night in san matt. those flames erupting from the back. the incident happened at 10:00 p.m. last night on the san matt bridge in the san francisco area. we understand that the limousine driver noticed that there was smoke coming from the rear at which point he pulled over. he got out unharmed. now, four of the passengers that were towards the front of the limousine were able to get out safe. five others perished there at the scene. their names are not being released by i called the coroner's office earlier and they told me the bodies were so severely burned that it could take case before they are positively i.d.'d. >> investigators have talking to the driver of the limo but has anything been said public ly by the driver? >> we called the limo company and they did not return our call. they did release a statement. the statement read in part, limo
1:07 pm
stop will do everything possible to investigate and assist authorities in determining the cause of this fire in order to help bring forth answers and provide closures to the victims and their families. a tragic situation in san francisco in the bay area. several unanswered questions including if the limousine company could perhaps be in fault for this. this fire according to chp broke out outside of the vehicle perhaps even underneath. a lot of questions that they will have to answer. >> tragic. thanks so much. appreciate that. a soccer referee was allegedly punched in the head by a player. the injury later put him in a coma and now the ref is dead. he passed away last night in utah. police say a 17-year-old player punched the ref at a game last weekend. portil lo h portillo had given him a yellow
1:08 pm
card. coming up, we'll talk to our legal experts about what that player could be facing. onto syria now, explosions lit up the sky over damascus. syrian officials are blaming israel for attacking a military facility after israel carried out an air strike against syria last week. in an exclusive interview, syria's deputy foreign minister said the attack recommends an alliance between islamic terrorists and israel. >> this is not something that's strange but we dealt with this on several occasions and we retaliated the way we want and the retaliation was always painful to israel. they will suffer again. >> israeli military is not commenting on the report but they deployed two rocket interception batteries to northern israel and starting
1:09 pm
today israel will not allow civil aviation flights to use airspace over some parts of the country. israel says it's not metalling in the war but protecting itself from hezbollah militants. a small plane finished what should have been a routine maneuver. take a look. >> no one knows what happened and why this crash took place. the pilot died of course hours later at the hospital. more than a dozen people were injured on the ground. the pilot was a commander in the spanish air force and a trainer. back in this country, firefighters now have the upper hand on that huge wildfire burning through the los angeles hills. calmer winds and cooler temperatures and rain in the
1:10 pm
forecast all of that helping. the fire is now 56% contained but there's also the threat of thunderstorms and with that comes lightning which could potentially spark more fires. thousands of homes are still being threatened. president obama gave the commencement address at ohio state university today. he told the buckeye grads that in the face of tragedies like the boston bombing, americans pull together. >> thank you. we've seen courage and compassion. a sense of civic duty and a recognition we are not a collection of strangers. we are bound to one another by a set of ideals and laws and commitment and a deep devotion to this country that we love. and that's what citizenship is. >> the president has close ties to the university. he held a rally there to kick off his re-election campaign a
1:11 pm
year ago today. all right. despite a soggy track, the favorite horse, orb, is the winner of the kentucky derby. the horse has won five races in a row and will be among the favorites heading into the preakness. the next race in the triple crown. orb came from the rear crossing that finish line first. the man who rode orb celebrating his first kentucky derby win. plea deal for the boston bombing suspect? it could happen. the government could take the death penalty off the table. uh-huh. honey, i got this.
1:12 pm

1:14 pm
and don't get heartburn in the first place! [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. the jodi arias case is in the hands of the jury. the jury started deliberating late friday afternoon and will be at it again tomorrow. they sat through more than seven hours of closing arguments on friday. both the prosecution and defense says jodi is a liar who killed her ex-boyfriend, travis alexander. what jurors have to decide is was it murder or self-defense? of course we'll watch this one and bring you the results during the week. and now to the boston bombing investigation. the fbi is searching the apartment of slain suspect tamerlan tsarnaev again today after an earlier search where investigators found explosive residue in that apartment where tamerlan lived with his wife and young daughter.
1:15 pm
let's bring in our legal panel. all right. let's talk about this new search. the surviving suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev told investigators that he and his brother built the bombing devices in tamerlan's home. won't this be a pretty sizable challenge for dzhokhar's defense team if he pleads not guilty with that admission already? rachel, you first. >> it's not going to be anymore of a challenge having already found these things because at arraignment everybody pleads not guilty because under our system of law you're not guilty until you're proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. this doesn't have anything to do with his plea initially at arraignment. >> paul, what do you see? do you see a pottial plea bargain somewhere down the road here for him? >> yes, i do. as a matter of ct, h only help for avoiding the death penalty is probably trying to
1:16 pm
negotiate some kind of a plea that will prevent the government from having to try the case and i think the way the case looks to be shaping up against him, it's a very strong case right now. he's linked by photographs. he's linked by motive. he's linked by forensic evidence. prosecutors have a great case against him. >> and some admissions. >> they have lots of admissions. some of them usable. maybe some not because they were made before the miranda warnings were issued but most certainly an easy case to prove in court for prosecutors. >> let's talk about tamerlan tsarnaev's widow, katherine russell, who reportedly worked 80 hours a week and she really didn't spend a lot of time in that apartment and that's why perhaps she may not have been able to see any kind of building of bombs or explosive material, et cetera. so, rachel, how closely are they going to look at this evidence and searching for any kind of dna? her dna on any of the evidence
1:17 pm
thus far collected if they were to find some. potentially what kind of charges might she be facing? what would her legal road be? >> absolutely. she could definitely be facing conspiracy charges. she could be facing accessory after the fact charges and she could be facing main charges here. dna isn't an exact science. it could have been an indirect transfer. the fact that her dna might be on the bomb that was made in an apartment she was living in is not necessarily going to connect her hands down to the crime. what they're going to be doing is exerting as much pressure as they can on her because they want to make sure that this thing ended with these boys and that it didn't continue on and there aren't greater plots afoot here. she'll be an excellent source of information for that if she actually knows anything. >> there has been no evidence linking here just by association she living in the apartment and so much being said about bombs
1:18 pm
being constructed and put together in that apartment. there is some potential, is there not, that she would know something? >> i'll tell you something. putting on my old prosecutor hat, there's something about her setup that doesn't ring right with me. her father and grandfather went to phillips academy and yale educated upper class in terms of their background in rhode island and suddenly she's marrying a boxer from russia and adopting the muslim faith and he's a radical jihadist we obviously understand and to believe that she wouldn't know that something was going on with this guy in the basement of her house, she probably rejected her own family in order to do this. i think she was buying into his game. she was buying into his philosophy and his ideology. that's what i think. she knows something. i think they're going to come after her when they make a case.
1:19 pm
so there, rachel. >> paul, i'll tell you, smart women make mistakes for love all the time and they can be blinded by love all the time no matter how smart they are. it happens. and things can be going on under your own roof that you really don't know about. i think that the defense will have strong arguments here. and i don't think that it's a slam dunk against her at all. i think the strongest thing for them to utilize her for at this point is information and pressuring her for more information. >> okay. so far no evidence. strictly a lot of presumption being made. we have another case we want to talk about involving a referee in utah who was allegedly punched by a teen soccer player and now that referee goes from being in a coma to now being dead. it's an incredible case. the family is in mourning and the soccer player now facing serious charges. this week things could get even
1:20 pm
more serious for that teen soccer player. much more straight ahead. the projects will be done in a timely fashion and within budget. angie's list members can tell you which provider is the best in town. you'll find reviews on everything from home repair to healthcare. now that we're expecting, i like the fact that i can go onto angie's list and look for pediatricians. the service providers that i've found on angie's list actually have blown me away. join today and find out why over 1 million members count on angie's list. angie's list -- reviews you can trust.

1:22 pm
1:23 pm
the tragic death of a soccer referee has shocked a community in utah. ricardo portillo was punched in the head by the teen after he gave the player a yellow card. he ended up in a coma and passed away last night and the teen is in juvenile detention. let's bring in the legal guests we just heard from momentarily. cnn legal analyst paul callan and defense attorney rachel self back with us. police charged the 17 year old with aggravated assault. it's said that charges could be upgraded. are we talking about it predicated on whether she's charged with a juvenile or as an adult? >> we're looking at both things.
1:24 pm
under utah law he could be kept as a juvenile in which case he's going to wind up with a slap on the wrist for this horrible crime. there is a possibility though that they could try him as an adult and there they will look at criminal homicide charges under utah law. it's tough sledding for him because to be guilty of homicide, it's not just that you caused somebody's death, you have to have the intent to cause the death or act recklessly and defense lawyers are going to say the kid just punched him once. never in a million years was he trying to kill him. this is not really a homicide and that's what undoubtedly my friend rachel self will say is the best defense in the case but we'll see. >> rachel, speak for yourself? >> that's absolutely -- yes, yes -- that's absolutely what they're going to say. it was completely unintentional. the danger here and we don't know what's going to happen in this case is that he gets tried as an adult because the utah system is famous for treating
1:25 pm
youths very, very harshly. if it is decided to try him as an adult, he'll be held in a county facility and not be held in a juvenile detention facility and he can definitely -- it can happen because any youth between 14 and 18 years old who commits a felony, the prosecution can choose to present to the court to try him as an adult at which case he's looking at some serious time. however, as the u.s. supreme court has recently decide ed in miller v. alabama, they take his youth into account with sentencing. >> go ahead, paul. >> you know, in these cases, it's a one punch murder case really. what the court looks at and what prosecutors look at is the person who threw the one punch, was he a trained boxer? did he have karate training or
1:26 pm
marshal arts training to suggest he knew that one punch could kill the human being. this could be a homicide charge if that's in the background. we have to await facts to see how they develop. >> you have to wonder with this incident and other reported incidents of violence on the sidelines or even on the playing fields or venues, whether this will lead to -- even though we talk about young people playing, whether this will lead to law enforcement, greater force of law enforcement on the sidelines just to prevent the kind of aggression that unfolds too often on these playing fields. >> youth sports is all about teaching sportsmanship and teaching respect for others and so the fact that this is starting to happen is just a tragic commentary on what's happening with the youth today and i think parents should be getting a little stricter with their kids myself. that's me. >> i wonder if anything has
1:27 pm
changed. i have a feeling this has been going on for years but it's now with 24-hour news cycle and with us covering these cases we're just aware of it. i'm betting kids haven't changed that much and parents really haven't changed that much either. this is bizarre behavior and hopefully we won't see too much of it statistically around the united states. >> i don't remember anything of this sort when i was on any kind of playing field growing up. i don't know what's going on these days. all right. paul callan, thanks so much. rachel self, appreciate it. >> thank you. she's a singer, songwriter and amazing performer. now alicia keys has a new role. what she's doing to help women stay healthy. ♪ the chevrolet malibu eco with eassist captures downhill energy, unleashing it later to help propel you uphill. ♪ it adds up to an epa-estimated 37 mpg highway... ♪

1:32 pm
many people get bit by a shark twice?" all right. good luck to him. let's look at the stories that are trending online. it promised to pack a punch and the new "iron man 3" is doing just that. the movie smashed to the top of the u.s. box office raking in just over $175 million. that's the second best opening weekend ever just behind last year's release of "the avengers." usher is adding acting to his resume. he'll portray sugar ray leonard in an upcoming film starring robert de niro and edgar ramirez. entertainment channel e had to shut down its twitter account. e online was suspended after it was apparently hacked and began
1:33 pm
posti posting false news alerts. onto sports now, surviving the mud at churchill downs, boos were ringing out in a championship fight in las vegas and "star wars" characters invade a minor league ballpark. there's a lot on tap in this plee bleacher report. >> it started with rain, lots of it and ended with tears of joy from a hall of famer. 139th kentucky derby was so rainy that the hat was more about function than form. orb was fourth from last and blew away the field for the win. the legendary trainer first ever kentucky derby win. he couldn't hold back the tears afterwards and the jockey, the one man on the planet who loved receiving roses yet. a few weeks ago he also won the richest race in the world in

dudu dubai and can't believe the year he's having. >> i won the kentucky derby. it's like a dream. >> i won't have to worry about it anymore. i worried about it for a while. i might not anybody know that but inside that thought was always there. >> a great win. you cannot miss the collection of best and worst hats at the derby that we have for you at floyd merryweather won the first site since he got out of ja jail. fans booed at times because they wanted more action but the champ admitted he hurt his hand during the fight but was clearly the better fighter. money is feeling like he is made of money after earning $32 million for last night's fight. the toledo mud heads felt a

"star wars" days has a sequel. i must warn you. this is the end of my sportscast but if you strike me down now, i'll only become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. >> jeff, may the force be with you. all right. so it's like the old saying goes. never judge a book by its cover. it's definitely true for this blind vet who took down a man that he says attacked him. uh-huh. honey, i got this. we got this, right? dry cleaning done. gift for your aunt... done. today, we're gonna be talking about your body after baby.
1:36 pm
yep. we're done. okay. let's get some lunch. yes! [ laughs ] all right! yes, honey. all natural -- everything. done. oh! i forgot the check. [ camera clicks ] done. [ female announcer ] on your phone, online, on the go. wells fargo makes it easy to get banking done. a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today. [ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective
1:37 pm
to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures.
1:38 pm
before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit a would-be attacker picked the wrong guy to go after. gordon is a blind vet walking down the street with his seeing eye dog when he was attacked. and he used to be in the u.s. army special forces and he fought back. >> he said i can make you see again. he punched me in the head again. i'm, like, man, you're not going to like the way this is going to go. i hip tossed him letting go of the leash. when i hit the ground on top of him i told my dog to stay and i

1:40 pm
and it is shocking and it is unacceptable. >> reporter: so unacceptable that she came to washington to launch empowered, a campaign she hopes will help women get tested, protect themselves, live full, healthy lives and speak openly about the disease. >> we can't act like it's not happening. we have to make sure that we know that we're all at risk. this is all of our issues. we can't go around and not let people be who they are in the light of day. it can't be like this anymore. we're too far in the future now. >> reporter: alicia keys has an ally in valerie jared. her sister-in-law died of aids 20 years ago. >> she was married with a young child and didn't get testing early on she should have early on in her illness because it never occurred that a married mom would be hiv positive. >> keys met with women willing

are hiv positive. you are beautiful, gorgeous human being who has so much to offer this world. >> crossing the line from religious conviction to dangerous extremism. is that what happened with the boston bombing suspects? we look at how it potentially happens and what some of the warning signs are.
1:43 pm
1:44 pm
1:45 pm
were there signs that
1:46 pm
tamerlan tsarnaev was embracing an extremist strain of islam that could have led to violence? he had an angry outburst at a mosque and people are evaluating the posting of a suspicious youtube video. how can you tell when someone's religious beliefs have crossed a line and become a danger? charles kimball is author of "when religion becomes evil." dr. kimball joining us from norman, oklahoma. good to see you, doctor. >> thank you, fredricka. nice to be with you. >> is there a way to summarize this? who is most vulnerable to becoming a religious extremist of any type of following or faith? >> well, we now can look across the different religious traditions and through the centuries and i think identify some of the warning signs, none of these indicate that somebody or some group is going to go off
1:47 pm
and become violent extremists but a combination of these often should send up flags of concern and the one that jumps most immediately to mind -- there are several that apply perhaps in this case is the warning sign of the end justifies the means where some particular end is deemed as extremely important and then people justify anything to meet that end. in the case of the younger brother, we have one of the postings apparently where he said when you have the knowledge and the inspiration, all that's left is to take action. knowledge presumably is the end and the injustice that he and his brother felt somehow justified this kind of violent extremism. >> talking like finality. are we talking about a very small number of people if there's a way in which to calculate? >> absolutely. especially in the case of all religious traditions and what i
1:48 pm
look at in my book is examples from christianity, judaism, islam, but in the case of islam it's important to remember that the overwhelming majority of muslims all over the world are doing the very same thing that everybody else is doing. they're getting their kids ready for school and trying to put food on the table and fixing a flat tire and getting ready for grandma's birthday party tonight. they're not plotting or planning anything but there are small numbers of people who take particular absolutist claims and get inspired sometimes by particularly charismatic leaders that may be the case here. there's some indication certainly that some of the sermons and messages from the american muslim leader who was killed in a drone attack last year that some of his sermons may have been very inspirational in this case as well and we've seen that in several other cases
